Comments: Founded by Jane Wurwand in 1986, Dermalogica is a privately-owned personal care company with annual sales of $140 million, according to industry sources. Headquartered in Carson, CA, the company has more than 75,000 professional skin therapists and offices in 48 countries around the world.
According to the Dermalogica executives, freedom from parent companies and investors has allowed the company to stay true to its mission of skin fitness, and operate in a way that fosters entrepreneurship, creativity and passion in delivering professional skin therapists and their clients the products, education and tools to deliver their healthiest skin ever.
Dermalogica has a strong focus on education. To that end, more than 100 educators from 33 countries converged at the company’s corporate headquarters in May for the 16th Annual International Education Conference, a five-day interactive training event.
